SIX STRATEGIES FOR COUNTY SUCCESS
The First strategy is to discourage urban sprawl through financial incentives to live and work in the inner city and to create a unique way of life that will encourage people to live in the near downtown area.
The Second strategy is to integrate Bexar Met with SAWS to create one regional utility that will be able to continue to expand and secure our water resources.
The Third strategy is for our new Public Private Partnership — the expanded Economic Development Foundation — to continue aggressively pursuing economic development projects that will create good paying jobs.
A Fourth strategy is to continue the City-County effort to protect sensitive land, expand parks, wildlife preserves, and our creeks and watersheds.
The Fifth strategy is to develop a balanced transportation policy that enhances the role of public transportation.
The Sixth strategy is to work to help those in our community who need it most — specifically those who are suffering from addiction, mental illness or both.
